It is Jack-O-Lantern Night in the Kassel Household! First, Andy cut the tops off the pumpkins and then I scooped the guts! It is truthfully one of my favorite parts…
Second, the kids drew the faces that they wanted on paper so that Daddy has something to copy. John was very specific this year. He wanted a happy pumpkin.
Laura wanted a mix of different things. Originally, she wanted a one-eyed pumpkin, but that changed by this evening.
Third, Andy uses his artistic skills to transfer the kids’ pumpkin face designs to the actual pumpkins.
Fourth, Andy carves and carves until the pumpkins are satisfactory to all. This is actually never in question, because Andy is an excellent Jack-O-Lantern carver.
Lastly, the finished Jack-O-Lanterns are placed in their new home on our front porch for all to enjoy.
